I've seen one or two versions of this song on the net already, but none
of them seemed to be complete. Well this one isn't either (who am I to
break a trend?), but it does contain slightly more than most versions.
I don't think it's 100% correct (in fact I think it's downright dodgy),
so let me know if you have any additions or corrections.

This is played several times in a row near the start, the 7th fret note
is only played the first time.

This is the chorus riff; the last time you play this (the fourth time in
the second chorus), don't play the "scale" - hold the Gb for an extra
moment and then go on to Riff H.

This is played about four times towards the end of the solo-
It's difficult to hear this bit so I don't know which, if either, is
correct -let me know what you think.


The riffs are played _roughly_ in this order

Riff A x 4 \
Riff B x 4  }Intro.
Riff C x 2 /

Riff D x 3 \Verse-
Riff E x 1 /Play this twice.

Riff F x 4 \Chorus-
Riff G x 4 /Played simultaneously.

Riff C x 2

Repeat Verse.

Repeat Chorus.

Riff H x 2 \
Riff I x 4  }Bridge.
Riff J x 1 /

Riff C x ? \Solo backing.
Riff K x 4 /

Riff C x ? \Outro.
Riff G x ? /Played simultaneously.
